How Silicone Roof Coatings Work
Silicone roof coatings make up a large part of the coatings industry – and for good reason. Silicone is a highly versatile substance that can used for variety of different applications. It is widely considered to be one of the best coatings products on the market today. But what does that mean to a building owner or facility manager?
To appreciate the many benefits of silicone coatings, you must first understand how it integrates into a roof restoration system. In most systems, silicone provides a flexible, UV stable, waterproof layer capable of handling ponding water. It also has excellent reflective qualities that can drastically reduce the energy cost of a commercial building.
At American WeatherStar, we understand the importance of silicone coatings within fluid-applied roof restoration. That is why we offer multiple roof coating systems that incorporate silicone as a key component.

Installing Silicone Roof Coatings
For the most part, silicone roof coatings are relatively easy to install. Depending on the roof type and application, a tank spreader or airless sprayer can be used to achieve the greatest amount of coverage when applying a top coat or base coat. For details such as seams, fasteners, penetrations, and transitions, a brush or bulk gun is typically used. Click here to learn more about roof coatings equipment.
